http-checks

Table of Contents

Overview

The http-checks is a collection of Sensu Checks that providing monitoring
and metrics for HTTP based services. These are relatively simple checks at the
moment, but future enhancements such as custom headers are planned.

Attribution

Portions of http-check and http-json are based on and/or derived from the HTTP
check found in the NCR DevOps Platform nagiosfoundation collection of
checks.

Checks

This collection contains the following checks:

  • http-check - for checking HTTP status or searching for a string in the
    response body
  • http-perf - for checking HTTP performance by measuring response times,
    provides metrics in nagios_perfdata format
  • http-json - for querying JSON output from an HTTP request

Usage examples

http-check

Help output

HTTP Status/String Check

Usage:
  http-check [flags]
  http-check [command]

Available Commands:
  help        Help about any command
  version     Print the version number of this plugin

Flags:
  -u, --url string               URL to test (default "http://localhost:80/")
  -s, --search-string string     String to search for, if not provided do status check only
  -r, --redirect-ok              Allow redirects
  -T, --timeout int              Request timeout in seconds (default 15)
  -t, --trusted-ca-file string   TLS CA certificate bundle in PEM format
  -i, --insecure-skip-verify     Skip TLS certificate verification (not recommended!)
  -h, --help                     help for http-check

Use "http-check [command] --help" for more information about a command.

Example(s)

http-check --url https://sensu.io --search-string Monitoring
http-check OK: found "Monitoring" at https://sensu.io

http-check --url https://sensu.io --search-string droids
http-check CRITICAL: "droids" not found at https://sensu.io

http-check --url https://sensu.io
http-check OK: HTTP Status 200 for https://sensu.io

http-check --url https://sensu.io/notfound
http-check WARNING: HTTP Status 301 for https://sensu.io/notfound  (redirects to /oops)

http-check --url https://sensu.io/notfound --redirect-ok
http-check OK: HTTP Status 200 for https://sensu.io/oops (redirect from https://sensu.io/notfound)

http-check --url https://discourse.sensu.io/notfound
http-check CRITICAL: HTTP Status 404 for https://discourse.sensu.io/notfound

Note(s)

  • When using --redirect-ok it affects both the string search and status checkfunctionality.
    • For a string search, if true, it searches for the string in the eventual destination.
    • For a status check, if false, receiving a redirect will return a warning status. If true, it will return an ok status.
